An edit to GameSpy's New SimCity Preview
backtracks from the statement
that the upcoming return of the urban planning series will only be playable while online. The preview originally confirmed this now-debunked report before being fixed: "Yes, you will have to register an Origin account in order to play, and yes, you must be online
at all times while playing
in order to start playing. EA has confirmed that you will not be kicked out if your connection is interrupted."
